The Center for Integrated Protein Science Munich (CIPSM) is a group of organizations as involved into the sciences as situated in Munich. The entire conglomeration of groups is consisted of the esteemed organizations as the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, the Technical University of Munich, the Helmholtz Center Munich, and the Max Planck Institutes of biochemistry and neurobiology in Martinsried. The nature of the Research at the center ranges from the isolated proteins up to the proteins as living organisms that apply methods of biophysics, biochemistry, medicine, and biology.
The primary objective of the institute is to establish the fact that biological macromolecules are cornerstone and center of the human living. It tries to understand the functional importance and structural effects that are yet not have been catered to the level of understanding, elaborately. Investigation of isolated proteins up to living organisms is done especially with respect to the interactions, structural complexities, folding, and structures of protein complexes, interactions between proteins and nucleic acids and neuro-degenerative diseases that provide to give basic knowledge of these macromolecules. This very knowledge there further relate to stages in the biomedicine and biotechnologies.
Each research area as divided into the (A-F) is headed by two coordinators who remain in touch with the executive board and takes decision about the appointment of new professorships and also chose the executive board of four researchers and one member responsible for family and gender support. The main duties of the board members are to do research, teaching and support of junior academic staff. The board members represent the interests of the cluster towards the directorate of the respective university. The speaker of the board and his deputy there shares the responsibility of the supervision and recruitment of junior professorships. There regular meetings are held and coordinated between group leaders and coordinators to carry out the successful working of the cluster.
There is also run a program for the Female scientists at the institute that is known as to be the Gender Support Program. The program is also known AFF (Ausschuss für Familien- und Frauenförderung; committee for family and gender support). The program was made with the objective to get associated with as much as number of researchers with children and habilitated females into professorships or leading positions. The committee is headed by a member of the board who is primary responsible for the issues related to family and gender support. Financial help to the CIPSM is provided by the Federal Republic of Germany, the states of Germany and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft in the course of the German Universities Excellence Initiative and distributed orientated on demand.
